I'm wondering if the EDPB shouldn't intervene with an official communication against #Microsoft as they are once again misleading the public, first with their invalid SCCs and now by stating they comply and exceed EDPB's recommendations.
There is absolutely nothing in their blog and attached document that resembles any of the additional measures required to comply with EDPB's recommendations but it seems like it doesn't really matter to them.
#Firefox 83 introduces HTTPS-Only Mode
I enabled it to get more visibility on websites not yet updated to HTTPS. Will you?
How the U.S. Military Buys Location Data from Ordinary #Apps.
«A Muslim prayer app with over 98 million downloads is one of the apps connected to a wide-ranging supply chain that sends ordinary people's personal data to brokers, contractors, and the military. [...] It is safe to say from this context that the reasonable consumer—who is not a tech person—would not have military uses of their data in mind, even if they read the disclosures».
It is based on the popular youtube-dl command line tool, but much easier to use, especially with videos/playlists that require a login (like your personal "Watch Later" list).

Here’s how a well-connected security company is quietly building mass biometric databases in West Africa with EU aid funds: meet Civipol.
Leaky Gas Pump: Harvesting User Data From a Local Gas Station
I am trying to use this script (https://gist.github.com/nolanlawson/668abcf9f5e8ef4659e132a32525e50c) but it fails on accessing to the db. I don't get which kind of grants I should add to my #mastodon user (the one configured inside .env.production) in order to complete the job. I am trying to run the job with the same user.
I have already tried with "grant all privileges for mydb to myuser;" with no success.
Any suggestion is appreciated!
The result? Faster, better quality than WhatsApp, and the - true - freedom to use any platform you want.
Needless to say, I'm switching away forever from nonfree software when calling my significant contacts from now on. Victory!

I'm excited to share my #apconf2020 talk, "Decentralized Social Media vs the Trolls."
In it, I tell how the #Fediverse, a #decentralized social network, rallied together to isolate an invasive right wing extremist group through codes of conduct, human moderators, and strong moderation tools.
